NEW YORK (AP) The Yankees' most recent power feat qualifies as "obscure" to manager Aaron Boone. Just not unexpected.

Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton stretched New York's home run streak to a record-tying 27 games, and the Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-8 Monday night. Hicks and Stanton each hit three-run drives, and New York matched the mark set by Alex Rodriguez and the 2002 Texas Rangers.

"Nothing surprises me that they do," Boone said about his club, which set a major league record last year with 267 homers. "I wouldn't set out to predict they're going to break that one. That's kind of an obscure one. But now that it's happened, with our group, does it surprise me? No."
